The Virginia Almanac project at George Mason University’s Schar School of Policy and Government provides an informative record of legislative sources, key decision-makers, and the legislative process. The new online edition outlines the basic framework of Virginia politics by providing the raw data for analyzing the record of members of the General Assembly. As a historical tool the Almanac is useful to lobbyists, libraries, civic activists, and researchers. This easily accessible source is an indispensable tool for those who want to know the who, what, when, and how of Virginia politics.
At the Center of the Policy WorldLocated where policy happens—just six miles from the U.S. Capitol Building—the Schar School’s campuses are located in Arlington and Fairfax, Virginia. Students are connected to jobs, internships, networking, and experiences that can only be found in the Washington, D.C., area.
